Today we heard from our Chinese host as to some of the things coming up for the Tieling Camp.
We will be having opening ceremony on the night of the 29th. Our host told us that we will have about 80 students ranging in age from seven years old to 17 years old.

It will be on Monday night after our arrival. We also will do the Crazy Camera Scavenger Hunt on Tuesday, another exciting Challenge Night where all of the students challenge each ...read more »
